English: One mechanism H. pylori has to combat the acidic environment of the stomach is the urease enzyme. This enzyme can be found on the surface of and inside the cell. It takes urea and water from the bloodstream and stomach and converts them to ammonia and carbon dioxide. These products neutralize the strong acid of the stomach, and as a result a buffer zone surrounds the bacteria to protect it from the strong acids in its environment.
